Just Another Week


taking a moment to find joy in the little things

{pretty}










{happy}
While out walking near our favorite river, we noticed a carriage ride. It turned out to be free (accepting donations for a local charity) and the line wasn't too long so we waited our turn. 



Look how close the deer is...this was in the middle of a neighborhood




It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here! We have decorated our violins and are busy practicing our favorite Christmas carols and hymns to share with nursing home residents and our church family in the next couple weeks.






{funny}
We went to a fundraiser for a local shelter for homeless families and it was a wine tasting event. There was a silent auction and we won the giant bottle of wine! I guess I need to have a party....


{real}
I don't have any of my out-of-town gifts ready to mail. At this point, it's not my fault. I'm waiting for what I ordered to be finished and shipped to me.

  6. Those river scenes look like the Deschutes River and the mountain scene the Three Sisters and Broken Top. Hello to a fellow Oregonian! I live in the Portland area.
